For our first day back to school (I always start the day after Labor Day) we got to ride on a bus and go on a field trip! The principal (my dear husband) even got to come. I love the flexibility of homeschooling!
We went to the Brigham City temple open house! It was so exquisitely lovely. I enjoyed finding the peach blossom motif in the windows, the carpet, the border inlaid on the marble floor, the walls, and the ceiling. I love how the LDS Church ties in each temple, to make it unique, the the local environment and culture. Brigham City is known for its peaches, hence the peach blossom motif.
This is a window of the temple, as seen from the outside, with the peach blossom design etched into the glass.
I felt the spirit witness to me that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true as I read the statements about the temple in the reception room. I am so thankful for the gospel and the sealing power that makes our family eternal.
